As an introduction to high-end Japanese cutlery, the Tojiro DP series of knives is arguably the best. The quality of the core VG-10 steel, stainless clad construction, blade geometry, versatility of edge profile, and high level of fit and finish are unmatched at the price points offered. Convexing on the blades is done very well, the tapered spine on most knives in the DP series heightens balance and dexterity, and the flush handle surfaces make these knives incredibly comfortable to use for long periods of time. It is no wonder that these knives are favorites among value-conscious professional and home cooks in both Japanese and Western kitchens.

The Tojiro DP 165mm nakiri is a traditional Japanese style of knife designed to efficiently prep vegetables and fruits. The taller blade gives the knife excellent cutting power and stability through larger cuts and the flatter edge profile makes this pattern ideal for chopping. While a tip is absent on a nakiri, it is actually a quite versatile knife that performs very well in most vegetable cutting applications.

    5  Great entry-level knive, July 10, 2016
    Posted By: Ramon

    For the sale price, this would be a great purchase for someone looking to get into Jap knives. Perhaps if you have a nice German chef's knife and want to inexpensively spice up your kit. It works great, cone pretty sharp ootb. It is not IMO going to pull of the sexiest thinnest of cuts without thinning. But in practical terms it will cut what you need and is comfortable to use. If you already got some nice jks beyond shun classics, I would justt use them and save for a higher performer unless you want to thin it. I ended up selling mine for close to what I paid. Make sure you treat it like a Jap knives should be treated. The guy I sold it to put a lot of little chips in the edge and was completely unaware how they got there. It was pristine when I sold it to him.

    I shouldn't if said that u can not pull of amazingly thin slices with this nakiri. I didn't use it for things like tomatoes. I used it for things like Brussels sprouts and it didn't go through as nice as my gyuto, so it became a bag dweller. Still a great knife for the price. I personally would save money and take the tojiro DPS over shun classic any day. I'm not a fan of global overall, but some might like the performance of globals a little better,perhaps.

    My tojiro nakiri sees heavy use daily. I don't really have to think about it and as a busy chef owner that is perfect. My line cooks covet it and my prep cooks can't really damage it. A few strokes on the stones every 3 months and it stays shave sharp. One of the best knives I have ever owned

    4  good knife but too heavy for the size, July 2, 2016

    Good knife but a little too heavy for the size. It makes my hand cramp up after a long day. I took the factory edge off and its wicked sharp and doesn't require a lot of sharpening after.

    Recieved the knife. Thank you CKTG for quick service. I was looking for a quality, inexpensive Nakiri and was excited by the reviews. This knife fell a bit short for me. IMO it needs sharpening out of the box. The tang is slightly longer than the handle and the edges are relatively sharp. This is not an issue when using the knife but speaks to fit and finish. The spine is relatively sharp as well and the edges will have to be broken hete as I use a pinch grip. Weight and balance on the knife are very good. Very nice knife after sharpening and taking off the sharp edges but this should have been done by the manufacturer.

    Fantastic knife! Been forcing myself back from purchasing this for a while because I was trying to convince myself that the more expensive ones are better. But after a lot of thinking and reading, I finally did it and I could not be happier. Absolute quality knife for an unbeatable price. I've already used it for making dinner and it's gonna get used a lot at work. Thanks CKTG!!

    p.s. get the saya, it's pretty sexy with it.

    Always wanted a nakiri and when I saw the price I ordered it. Also as a way to push myself into push-cut instead of rock-chop. Way sharp OOTB, haven't felt the need to put it to a even a hone yet (2 weeks). Handle is good European style, great bolster and balance with pinch hold, with or without index finger on spine. Fit and finish of blade, bolster and handle excellent. Good as 2x 3x the price. Over-ripe tomato slices you can read a paper through. So nice I ordered a Tojiro guyto and petty - both excellent fit and finish - and just as sharp OOTB. We'll see how long the edges lasts. I'm curious how the VG10 will sharpen on my (heresy) oilstones.

    I should have got this one a long time ago!
    Super sharp thin blade - cuts carrots, onions, etc like going through butter.
    Weight, balance, size and grip are perfect.
    Very attractive knife.

    Purchased this as an impulse buy, and am I ever glad I did. It is now the knife I grab the most. Reasonably sharp OTB, maintains a good edge, has great balance & a great price.I own two other Tojiro's and this one is by far the best. Buy it you won't be sorry.

    Bought 3 knives - they were so nice that I took them me on a trip to the mid-west; packed in the belly of a plane. They made Xmas cooking a joy. (Not to mention they were shipped on the day ordered - a Saturday no less).

    So Far, so good...find the knife sharp out of the box, but not extraordinary sharp like say a Global, nice balance and half decent weight, so far this knife has offered exceptional value in my mind.

    Wow, this one was a surprise! I've had several Tojiros but this one is the best. Fit and finish is very good, but most remarkable is the size & balance- it's basically perfect. Plus, it came fantastically sharp OOTB. It's the first knife I've bought in ages that I didn't need to sharpen before taking it to work.

    Five stars, only because I can't give it six! For the price I can't imagine how you could better this knife.

    Love it. Great edge. Shape and heft are new for me. Nearly cut my finger off. Can I tell the difference in sharpness b/w my Misono and this? I tell myself the Misono is sharper, but my brain probably just wants to convince me as much... since we spent 3x as much for UX10. Get this knife. Or try another shape. You won't be sorry.

    This is a phenominal knife. The craftsmanship and balance is out of this world. It slices through things without even having to struggle at all. If you want a great knife at a great price I recomend you buy this one.
